Celebrate the Celtic history and heritage of Central Pennsylvania at the second annual Dill’s Celtic Festival on Saturday, April 13th, 2019. This family-friendly event will feature Celtic crafters, artisans, vendors of traditional foods and beverages, musicians, and dancers. Tickets are $10 per person, and free for children 12 and under.
Over 275 years ago, Scots-Irish immigrants like the Dill family established homes, farms, and businesses in areas west of the Susquehanna River. Dill’s Tavern is the epicenter of Matthew Dill’s American Dream, a 500-acre property purchased in 1742 that would see the gradual development of a thriving community. In the spirit of these early immigrant dreamers, we celebrate Scots-Irish heritage and culture.
Pets are not permitted except for service animals. Celtic Fest is sponsored by Dillsburg Area Business Association (DABA) and Northern York County Historical and Preservation Society (NYCHAPS). Online ticket sales end 48 hours before event date. To view full event details, visit www.DillsCelticFest.com.
